Does time fly? Is it a line, a circle, a spiral? Does it touch us differently in different spaces? Many of us take for granted the meaning of the clock and the calendar, without considering that they are cultural constructs—related to natural cycles but also distinct from them.
In this workshop you can explore your own notions of time and space while learning about Indigenous timekeeping and sacred sites. The workshop is led by Geraldine Patrick Encina of the Center for Earth Ethics, who has studied the ancient and traditional calendars of Mesoamerica and also worked with Mayan communities to reclaim their original ways of timekeeping, and Mindahi Bastida Muñoz, also of Center for Earth Ethics, who works for the protection of the sacred sites and biocultural heritage of Indigenous peoples.
Attendees are asked to bring a picture of a beloved home landscape and of a sacred site they are connected to. Please also bring a device that can access Google Maps.Buy tickets/get more info now
